And on to the fish tale. Once upon a time...well, actually not long ago...Youngest Son (not a baby anymore!)
Do you see it? It's hiding in there...look closely.
This beautiful treadle sewing machine had served it's time on the porch of a cute little quilt shop and the owner (thanks Trish) decided it was time to pass it on to new hands. It's been waiting for a while for its new purpose, and now was the time. Hubby, child, and I jumped into this project a while back, meaning...we had to TRUDGE through some very deep snow to get to the storage building. To get an idea, this door is almost 3 feet off the ground!!
Youngest Son was told he had to earn his keep on this one. Yes the tank was a gift, but there was some work to do to prepare for it. Just look at him WORK!
And the stand? Disassemble here, repair there, sand, scrub, stain, poly. TaaDaa! She's a dandy. *Note, the drawers were left behind...they had been inhabited by some furry little critters and were beyond repair. Perhaps some burlap flaps will be added later...
DISCLAIMER-- No Child Was Actually Working In These Photos. (they were totally staged...had ya going didn't I?!)
The Junk Girls will be out and about for the next few days, but we'll have some fabulous stories to tell you later about our adventure! Read all about the AA JMS event HERE.
